This week, the trainee solicitor blog team wanted to highlight that applications for Cripps Pemberton Greenish training contracts and vacation schemes are now open! We caught up with recruitment advisor Katie Slade for a few quick tips.


Quote your knowledge on Cripps Pemberton Greenish

Firstly, it is important for me that I believe you are genuinely interested in Cripps Pemberton Greenish and not just copy and pasting from one application to the next. If you have done some thorough research, prove this to me! For example, tell me what you have seen that has impressed you,  mention articles you have found written by us, or say how impressed you were to see an award we have won.

Getting to know you

I understand it can be really tricky to get your personality across on paper. However it is very important to us that we recruit the right people, after all you are the future of Cripps Pemberton Greenish. We need to know you can be personable with clients and colleagues. I like to hear about your background (no matter what it is). This includes your hobbies/interests and anything else that you feel will help me get to know you.


Take time and get someone to check your application

Finally, you will be surprised at how many mistakes I find in applications. Even if you read your own application over and over again, it is easy to miss something you have written yourself. I don’t take any prisoners when it comes to spelling and grammatical errors, so please get a second pair of trusted eyes to check your application.
